Grant kicks off 2021 with a fun interview of Soccer Girl Problems (at 31:24), the trio of Alanna Locast, Carly Beyar and Shannon Fay that has become a digital powerhouse resonating throughout the women's soccer community. SGP tells their origin story of how they met as teammates at Fairfield University, how they made their first viral videos back in 2011 and how they turned SGP into a sustainable business that serves as their full-time jobs. They also discuss their terrific podcast, which has included interviews with Sarah Fuller, Mia Hamm, Julie Foudy, Kelley O’Hara and Sam and Kristie Mewis.

Before that, Grant breaks down the soccer weekend with Chris Wittyngham. They discuss Man United's rise to tie Liverpool on points atop the Premier League, the sources of Chelsea's poor run of form, the widespread starts of several USMNT players over the weekend and the one thing they're most looking forward to soccer-wise in 2021.
